Was the Europa ever called the Europe? This seems like info that I had once known but forgot. But now I'm not sure.
Edit: I just looked up and see in Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lotus_Europa) this:
The Series 1 or S1 Europa (also known as Lotus Type 46) was announced for sale to European markets on 20 December 1966. The first cars were delivered in France in February 1967. Volkswagen owned the rights to the Europa name in Germany, so cars for sale in Germany were badged Europe rather than Europa.
